Conscious Kids – Nature based Holiday Programmes / April 2020 @ Long Bay Park

Save your annual leave and allow your kids to play in natural settings these April School Holidays.
The Conscious Kids Social Enterprise is inviting your children to a 100% play-in-nature school holiday programme.
Nature play has proven physical, emotional and social health benefits. Our supervised programme allows kids to lead their own activities – mudslides, tree climbing, puddle splashing, hammock and hut building etc. Apart from the obvious safety restrictions and respect framework, there are few instructions for kids.  Our number 1 ‘rule’ is to HAVE FUN! Staff are present for supervision and support, but children follow their innate ‘readiness meter’ to make their own decisions before getting involved in any new situation.
Such child-led play enhances creativity, problem-solving, communication (including listening!), collaboration and many other 21st century skills.

The programme will during the two weeks of April Holidays @ Long Bay Park (14th – 16th and 21st – 23rd), at a cost of $65/child or $175/child for 3 days
Daily programmes run from 9 am to 4 pm and are designed for children aged 5 – 12 yrs old.
